Graptosedum 'California Sunset'


Product Details


Graptosedum 'California Sunset' (Graptopetalum paraguayense × Sedum adolphii) (Grim): A stemmed rosette with a pastel green center and peachy pink leaf tips. Its pink coloration is its most vibrant under slight stress from bright sunlight, infrequent watering, or cool temperatures around 50F. Look for white, star-shaped blossoms in the spring.

'California Sunset' is a fast, easy grower. It is not frost tolerant, so most growers will keep it potted on a sunny window sill when there is a chance of frost. They need ample sunlight, good drainage, and infrequent water to prevent rot. Pick containers with drainage holes and use well-draining cactus and succulent soil with 50% to 70% mineral grit such as coarse sand, pumice, or perlite. Water deeply enough for water to run out the drainage hole, then wait for the soil to fully dry before watering again.

Over time, dense clusters of long stemmed rosettes will form. Let them grow out for a trailing look or prune them back to keep the plant compact. 'California Sunset' roots easily from stem cuttings (more info).
